As a former student now in college, PHS did NOT prepare me in any way for college learning. The lack of leadership from the principal did little to engage learning in the school and discipline was a constant problem. Sports take precedence over learning to a degree it is degrading to the entire school.Books are outdated and in poor condition, labs were sub-par, and the facility itself has not been taken care of. I would suggest that any parent moving to the area transfer find an alternate place of learning for their child.

Purvis High School definitely did not prepare me for college. The choice of classes are abysmal, this school only has the basics in subject areas.

Purvis High is an amazing school, and is worth any students time. I'm glad that I'm being taught here, all the teachers are very kind and they actually care about you. There's enough students to where each teacher knows the students personally.

I loved going to Purvis High as it was a such a small school that the teachers and administrative staff really got to know the students and understand their needs. It did lack in 'advanced' classes and I found myself taking really basic courses as a senior just to make the required hours, but overall I was happy there and did feel that the teachers were always willing to work with me and help me in my goals. I loved the tight-knit community/family feeling I had there.
